Texas Apartment Association honors Joe Smith, RVP of Coinmach Service Corporation

Dallas, TX ‐ March 2010 ‐ The Texas Apartment Association (TAA) announces the winner of the prestigious Olin Steele Award. Congratulations go out to this year’s recipient, Joe Smith, Regional Vice President of Coinmach Service Corporation (CSC).

The Olin Steele award is an annual honor given only to vendors. It is given to someone who devotes a great portion of their time and efforts to various chapters of the apartment associations throughout Texas. Years ago, Mr. Steele was credited with starting many chapters of the Texas Apartment Association, in towns throughout East and West Texas. Currently, Joe Smith sits on several boards for both the Dallas and Ft. Worth apartment associations.

This year’s award finalists included Joe and 4 others from the State of Texas. It is interesting to note that the Olin Steele award has special and unique meaning for CSC since Mr. Olin Steele himself was once an employee of Solon Automated Services. Solon was a very large route company that many CSC employees also worked for in the past, and thus was a predecessor of CSC.
